The Cliff Residence

Perched on a bluff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean is this 5,000 square foot home. forms, nestling its mass into the promontory. The program, which could have easily overwhelmed the site and its neighbors, fits perfectly into the limits of the property. The proximity of houses is used as an advantage by framing water views and creating a dramatic sense of compression and release. The window bays are skewed to increase interior views along the beach while the three-sided porch becomes an enjoyable setting to enjoy the sun, breeze and colorful sails move up the coast.
